We expect a delightful 2018!

They call it the food of the gods and we couldn’t agree more, after having specialised in some of the world most appreciated and bestselling foods like Pizza, Bread, and Gelato. We are obviously talking about Chocolate, the sublime creation obtained from the cocoa beans and probably the most successful invention in the food history.

Despite the abundant offer of chocolatey products, the research of new developments in vast and promising. If the food industry is able to propose always new recipes and unique combinations involving the use of chocolate, there are also other industries, like the cosmetic industry, taking advantage of the many benefits that can be derived from chocolate.

On one side we have consumers continuing to view chocolate confectionery as a form of indulgence that can hardly be turned down and chocolate manufacturers that continuously release new and interesting flavours to keep consumers engaged; on the other side, all the other positive effects of chocolate have attracted other fields. There are in effect a number of health benefits associated with this delicious treat; it seems that chocolate could prevent heart diseases, lowering cholesterol, preventing memory decline and it has been proven that it’s a great boost for our mood balance, a skin protector and a rich source of good energy.
